The Importance of Apologetics, and Q&A
Wednesday, September 17, 2014


On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank shares his thoughts on apologetics, which is much more than just defending the faith; it is both pre-evangelism whereby we prepare ourselves to be ready to give answers, as well as post-evangelism as a means to shore up our faith.

Hank answers questions on the following topics:

  • In 1 Corinthians 15:14, why would Paul say that our faith is worthless if Jesus did not rise from the dead? What about a skeptic who doesn’t believe in the physical resurrection or those who believe in a spiritual resurrection?
  • What is your opinion of Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding California?
  • Why are the Old Testament punishments more severe than in the New Testament? Why did so many of the laws change when Jesus came?
  • Can you comment on the film, The Unbelievers with Lawrence Krauss and Richard Dawkins, and Krauss’ statement that although the universe has no meaning, we make our own meaning?
  • Why are the four Gospels different? Are there contradictions? What about the difference between the synoptic Gospels and John regarding the day Christ was crucified?

Christianity on Trial

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
So wrote C. S. Lewis, one of the many witnesses cross-examined by Mark Lanier, one of America’s leading trial lawyers, in Lanier’s book Christianity on Trial.
Also called to take the witness stand are some of history’s greatest figures, including Plato and Descartes, Augustine and Einstein, Polycarp and Tacitus.
To discover Lanier’s verdict — and to boost your confidence in the rock-solid evidence that supports your Christian faith — get your copy of Christianity on Trial today.
